Midnight blast destroys Vancouver Starbucks and Taco del Mar
At some time between 2:00am and 2:30am a blast was heard by this reporter
from his house on the 200 block of W. 12th Ave. A chorus of sirens shortly
ensued. The morning arrived to reveal that a blast on the 600 block of W.
Broadway, originating in the Taco del Mar restaurant, had destroyed that
business and the adjacent Starbucks.
No one was hurt in the blast but there is much confusion as anxious business
people are having great difficulty finding another Starbucks in the city
without the aid of caffeine.
